New Support System Coming Online

We’re changing the way we handle support to improve customer visibility and customer service.

We’re deploying an externally hosted Support System that will allow users to log in and track their support issues.

Combines with Self Help, and status updates on this blog, we expect that information will flow more freely to customers and allow them to remain updated at all time.

We’re also setting up a Forum for Pre-Sales and Support questions to be answered by us and the community. The forum will not be an official line of support, so please use the ticket system for critical issues.

Windows Virtual Hosting

Work smarter, work safer, and work better together.

With Windows virtual hosting, your business can eliminate the common problem of underutilisation, reduce your energy bills and help you do your bit for (CSR) Corporate Social Responsibility.

Windows virtual hosting for businesses or individuals

Whether you need the convenience and reliability of cloud computing for your business or for personal use, Windows virtual hosting can provide you with a resilient way to deliver your IT infrastructure. With a virtualised server, you can publish and launch applications installed on the virtual Windows directly from your desktop. Getting started with our Windows virtual hosting product is very simple – you can quickly configure your order online. Once your order has been received, you will receive an operating password via email.

What is Underutilisation?

The truth is we all underutilise our IT resources. Not only does it mean large energy bills, but it also has an adverse effect on the environment. The average in-house server is used to an average of between 5 to 15%. Maximise your IT efficiency. Minimise your bills. Windows virtual hosting can reduce your consumption by giving you a much more resourceful approach to corporate and personal computing.

With an impressive consolidation ratio, Windows virtual hosting can boost hardware utilisation to help you get the most out of computing – when and where you need it.

Virtual Dedicated Server Hosting

Find independence. Get virtual private server hosting with SwitchLink.

Virtual private server hosting is a method of splitting a server, so that you can have your own fully-fledged operating system. This means that your server can be independently rebooted when you need it to.

Have your own private cloud with VPS

If you want all the benefits of virtualisation, such as 99.9% guaranteed uptime, efficient energy consumption, reduced bills, and maximum performance – you can do so, with virtual dedicated server hosting. A physical server boots as it normally would, and then a program boots individual servers within a virtualised environment, giving your server the independence it requires.

A virtual private server hosting service that delivers

Our virtual dedicated server hosting bridges the gap between shared web hosting services and a physical server. Each VPS partition runs its own operating system in a secure and private environment. Tackling the problems of underutilisation, you can get the most out of your IT, whether you are in the home or workplace. By minimising your energy consumption significantly, virtual dedicated server hosting can reduce your energy bills and help you make the necessary cutbacks on in-house resources.
